Translational & Precision Medicine (TPM) Network

Network Goals

Scientific Expertise:
  • The Translational & Precision Medicine (TPM) Network and associated Communities facilitate interactions among experts across multidisciplinary fields to foster translational science with a focus on individuals via patient care and society via healthcare. The interactions are through social media, email blasts, and teleconferences with focused scientific content.
Catalyst for Innovation:
  • The TPM Network is a catalyst for innovation by sponsoring a range of scientific programs at the Annual Meeting focused on translational and precision medicine.
Influence and Impact:
  • The TPM Network is the lead group engaged in translational and precision medicine and optimal pharmacotherapy in patient care.
Education and Communication:
  • The TPM Network offers educational opportunities via the Communities.
Organizational Effectiveness:
  • Leadership within TPM is expanded by a Network Steering Committee.
  • The TPM Network has regularly scheduled teleconferences and utilizes social media to engage members throughout the year.
  • The TPM Network fosters the career of its members by assisting Communities in recognizing members for individual achievements and contributions to ASCPT, sponsoring educational programming in translational and precision medicine, and providing opportunities for networking activities throughout an individual’s career.

Upcoming Webinar
ASCPT Members-Only Webinar presented by the Infectious Diseases (INF) Community
Title: Clinical Pharmacology and Modeling and Simulation Applications in Neglected and/or Tropical Diseases
Date and Time: Wednesday, February 5, 2020, 1:00 pm ET
Speakers: Melanie Nicol, PharmD, PhD, and Luning (Ada) Zhuang, PhD
Moderators: Philip Sabato, MSc, PharmD
Description: This presentation will focus on applications and obstacles to clinical pharmacology research in tropical and neglected diseases. The unique opportunities and limitations to clinical pharmacology research in a resource limited setting will be discussed. Additionally, examples of drug repurposing to address neglected diseases and how clinical pharmacology can support these initiatives will be explored. A focus of the second speaker will be on Chagas disease- a neglected, tropical disease. Efficacy and safety data will be shared to provide context of dose recommendations in pediatric patients with Chagas Disease based on a model-informed approach.

Please note this webinar will not be recorded. In addition, no slides will be available.

ASCPT Members-Only Webinar presented by the Pharmacogenomics (PGx) Community
Title:  Therapeutic Impact and Detection of Membrane Transporter Polymorphisms
Date and Time: Thursday, February 6, 2020, 12:00 pm ET
Speakers: Kathy Giacomini, PhD, Sook Wah Yee, PhD, and Alex Galetin, PhD
Moderators: Jason Sprowl, PhD
Description: In this webinar, we will provide an overview of transporter polymorphisms that are important in drug disposition and response.  We will focus on transporter polymorphisms that have a high level of evidence that they should be genotyped in drug development programs and in precision medicine.   In addition, we will describe the discovery of metabolomic biomarkers for transporters and how these biomarkers are being used in combination with modeling and simulation to predict interindividual variation in the activity of transporters due to genetic polymorphisms and drug-drug interactions.
